Meet JUDAS; the London-based Indie Four-Piece who didn’t grow up together, have only been a band for about two years and have deservedly managed to make their mark on the music scene.
Frontman John, Sam (drums), Todd (guitar) and James (bass) made a name for themselves on the festival circuit last year. JUDAS surged onto stages at Liverpool Sound City, Y Not, Truck Festival, Tramlines, Kendall Calling and Isle Of Wight. They produce BIG anthemic songs which fill the fields at festivals and really give the young band a stadium Rock vibe. Listen to “Sister” off the debut self-titled EP below:
Undoubtedly the biggest leap forward JUDAS have made in their short career was at Leeds festival 2016. A last minute cancellation meant that a spot had to be filled on the main stage, JUDAS were selected to fill the slot and the lads absolutely smashed it having never played a crowd anywhere near as big as the thousands of revellers spread out in front of the main stage.
JUDAS, led by charismatic frontman John Clancy gave a flawless performance under monumental pressure, leaving the foursome with a taste of the big time. The band’s sound has been compared to that of early U2 and Kings of Leon and following this main stage performance can now dream to be as big as these comparative counterparts. Check out “Call Me” below taken from the same debut EP:
All of the hype about JUDAS surrounds their live performance which is how it should be for a young rock band. JUDAS have spent their first two years as a band expanding and perfecting their live performance, the best way to get on board with these boys is to go and see them live.
